Butterfly Scarf

                                              Butterfly Fantasy

Who knew that my first project after some vacation and travel time would be a silk scarf? I didn't. But, a friend wanted to paint one and thought it would be fun if we painted our scarves together. I decided to leave my scarf white and paint colorful fantasy butterflies on it. I didn't want to get stuck with painting realistic butterflies and decided to make them as many colors as I could. I also wanted to try some new materials. We had some fabric pens to experiment with that were in shades of yellow to orange, a fine black pen and a glitter pen.

On this close up you can see where I used the glitter pen on the circles and a little on the body. I outlined all the butterflies with the fine black pen. This was an interesting, fun project and it got me into painting again. I'm starting a beach painting for a friend.
